There comes a time in each Grand Master’s life when he must close a huge chapter in his Masonic career, and that time has nearly come for me. On May 18, 2013, there will be a change in your leadership as I step aside and your 114th Grand Master is installed. It has been my honor to have served as your 113th Grand Master for the last two years. Thank you, each and every one, for your aid and assistance. You are the best!
Your Grand Lodge has made many positive strides in recent years. Too many to mention here. But the journey is not yet complete. Much work remains to be done. I look forward to supporting the Craft as together we seek further light in Masonry, look to grow our membership, support our community, and strive to make men better.
